My New E92 2008 335i M Sport

Hi All,

I have recently purchased a used 2008 335i M sport 6MT with 46k on the clock in Sparkling Graphite.

The usual spec with the following extras:

BMW professional Nav

BMW Individual audio system

Heated Leathers

I have to say that the BMW audio system is amazing. Best sound system I have ever heard (in my opinion). The colour is also fantastic!

Full Service history and was used only as a weekend car by the two previous owners hence the low mileage.

The car drives perfect. Well looked after by previous owners.

The only problem/situation I have is the engine oil that is used as descibed in this post:

http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1167633

Any help on this would be appreciated.

Other than that pure perfection!!!

Cheers

It's an exceptional colour, don't know whey they dropped it.


If you didn't get answer to the oil question I use Castrol Edge 0w30, that was the recommendation from Castrol.

Yes it is, thanks!


It seems that everyone is using 0w30 or 5w30. I hope the 10w60 tws castrol in the engine now did not do damage. I hope it doesnt start using oil/leaking after I change it over!

My E46 was ruined by oil issues and the Master Tech I dealt with, did suggest that - and I stress this is only one possibility - in it's earlier life someone put the wrong oil in.

Although it seems you're okay, I would, as some advised by some guys, in the other thread change it. But I would also contact Castrol and see what they say.

Hopefully this will provide you with peace of mind.

Would it be ok to switch to a lower weight oil after this has been in the engine for so long?

Once established it's the wrong oil, then I can't see why you would stay with it.
Maybe that's a question for Castrol. I put my plate in their oil selector again, and it was only Edge, 0w30 they recommended. Technical advice is offered here.
